Cher Public

Curtain going up, or whatever it is curtains will do in the future

Will robots replace prompters? Will random number generators replace stage directors? Who knows what the future will bring? Well, La Cieca’s informant has a few ideas, so take a look after the jump for some possible things to come at the Met.

The futur-o-scope hints at the following opening nights, all theoretically new productions:

2012: L’elisir d’amore [Netrebko ,Polenzani, Kwiecien, Gavanelli, d. Sher, c. TBA]

2013: Eugene Onegin [Netrebko, Semenchuk, Beczala, Kwiecien, d. TBA , c. Gergiev]

2014: Le nozze di Figaro [d. Grandage, c. Levine (?)]

2015: Der Rosenkavalier

2016: Tristan und Isolde

2017: La forza del destino

The cher public are invited to make educated guesses as to casting and artistic personnel.
